World Wetlands Day

World Wetlands Day (WWD) is celebrated annually on February 2nd. The day celebrates the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands, an intergovernmental treaty for conservation and sustainable use of wetlands and the resources they provide. Wetlands come in many shapes and forms and are vital for human survival.  Each year, the Institute for Environmental Sustainability will host a symposium which is meant to bridge the gap between the science and policy of wetlands. The first symposium was held on February 1, 2019. Photos and presentations from the event can be accessed below or check out the MRU Story!
